about drones coming out of the justice department that americans thought to be terrorists on foreign soil can be essentially disintegrated by drones. your thought about this? >> my thought is two thoughts. one, because of this administration's policy, if you find a terrorist who is an american citizen of the united states then that person has to be read his or her miranda rights. if that same person is overseas, then after a certain process, you can kill them. that doesn't -- that doesn't compute, but my other thought is that should we have the cia, central intelligence agency, being the uones carryin out the drone strikes or should it be a military mission. if it were, there'd be much greater oversight by congress, but instead we're turning an intelligence agency into the prime instruments or one of the prime instruments waging the war on terrorism and radical extremism. it seems we've gotten things out of balance here. >> greta: senator, thank you, sir. >> thanks for having me on. senator mccain has more about the full controversy, you can see it on gretawire.com. and immigration l
